Zee: Quantum Field Theory in a Nutshell

Here are some notes and solutions to accompany Anthony Zee’s textbook Quantum Field Theory in a Nutshell, 2nd edition (Princeton University Press, 2010). As always, I give no guarantee that the solutions are all correct, so if you spot any errors, please do leave a comment.

I’m not aware of any online list of errata for this book. (There is an errata page for the first edition, but presumably these errors have been corrected in the second edition.) If anyone knows of an official errata site for this book, please leave a comment below.

    Very happy to find your page. I have difficulties doing the maths in this book, althought quite interesting and friendly book,
    I have postponed my reading for the moment as I foundnd that general relativity is easier that QFT !
